president obama snide decided not to enforce immigration law with respect to hundred of thousands of people. recently the president decided he wouldn't enforce federal drug laws in states that legalize them. when congress refused to pass cap and change legislation under under democrat control the president decided would use executive power to do it. today's administration is essentially threatening states to impose cap-and-trade on his terms or see the environmental protection agency impose it on its term. ordinarily these measures would take an act of congress but presidential overreach does not enhance the rule of law or fairness. instead to restore trust in government we need to end special bailouts and special treatment like union exemptions from obamacare. congress should end forever the practice of passing earmarks. government should stop playing favorites in energy with subsidies and special tax loopholes. these policies have at least the appearance of cronyism and favoritism. another glaring example of special interest politics is the farm bill. we've made progress, cracking the unh

party. he is courting latino and black voters and recently made a point to sign immigration reform into law in the state of new jersey. democrats run the very real risk of getting complacent in the face of republican internal squabbles have underestimated the republican threat to their base. has starkly, republicans have been so bad on matters of race and equality the democrats have not had to do anything. soon, they will actually have to contest for the votes of people of color and make an argument about why they are better than the republicans in addressing the needs of the communities of color. that is an argument that few democrats are familiar with were comfortable making. what are the policy implications of the emerging new majority in america? i tell my friends who spend time andloping position papers influence public policy debate that as a general rule, elected officials who support any policy that they think will get them reelected. that brings us back to the question of who they think are doing the electing. who will be the voters of the upcoming elections? let's look at
